why am i only just learning that you have MASSIVELY increased the
scope and not even told me or consulted me?

no, we get *exactly the same money* even if the scopevs increased!
come on for god's sake jacob GET A GRIP. we are UNDER TIME PRESSURE

that's because he DOES NOT KNOW THE CONSEQUENCES because he has not
been properly trained and DID NT CONSULT ME.

andrey you MUST NOT authorize jacob to increase work scope
without a FULL REVIEW which you yourself have not been properly
trained in and are not authorized to make decisions on without
consulting me.

both of you should have followed the "time and budget review" process

i am getting seriously pissed off that you are threatening our promise
to NLnet that the work will be 100% completed.
